Program Description

This program is designed for students wanting to complete a four-year BSN Degree in Nursing and enter the workforce. Students explore procedures to provide and manage care in various health care facilities. Students acquire skills and techniques to perform in nursing care facilities, hospitals, clinics, physician offices, research laboratories, pharmaceutical companies, education institutions, state, public and government institutions, insurance and law firms, and private companies. The RN to BSN program is a continuation of preparation for entry-level nursing practice as a registered nurse. The program is a combination of hybrid and online courses, and can be completed in four semesters full-time. For students currently enrolled in the associate degree nursing program as well as those working full-time as a registered nurse, the program is flexible allowing extended time to earn a degree. As some employers show a preference for baccalaureate prepared nurses, the BSN can increase eligibility for nursing roles in direct patient care and leadership. The student must be licensed as a registered nurse prior to completion of the RN-BSN program.
